    Bought a new TV last week, an lcd 32 inch thats HD 1080p etc and im pretty impressed with it. I also have an x box and got told that if i wanted to get the full hd experience then i would need an elite. Now ive shelled out for an elite i have been told there is no difference between the 2, which as you can imagine is not something i want to hear.

    Ive just looked on the back of quantum of solace which i just bought and it has this on it HDTV 720/1080i/180p

    And that got me thinking, how could they do the three different settings on one disc or is it processed through the graphics card and then pumped through the hdmi slot. As i see it at the end of the day it is still dvd, and they can hold 4.7 whereas blu ray can hole 30 gig ish and thats where you get the detail from. Are you lost i know i am, and one more little question what does the i stane for in 1080i???

    Thanks for your time

    Well i can answer the What does the "i" stand for! I is for interlaced and P is for Prgressive. Its the scanning mode for the TV lines and fields of the resolution with P being better than I.

    As for teh different resolutions i'd assume it would be the way the 360 graphics card interperts the data and depends on teh Tv its conencted to. After all and HD ready TV tend to be 720 only while full HD TV is 1080P, so a 720 one wont display at 1080p yet a 1080P would show 720 is thats all thats being recieved.

    Yeah i noticed that when i was looking at TVs, the ones thet were hd ready were only 720 and the ones that were full HD were 1080p, so thats why i chose the one i got, full hd 1080p.

    yep 1080p is best, also the processing of whatever you have your xbox at is done through the graphics chip.

    Also the difference between a 360 original and Elite is that the chips are smaller so there is less chance of getting the three red lights of death (over heating) because the chips are getting cooled better.

    Well right now, I believe that both Elite and the regular pro consoles both have HDMI and both produce exact picture quality. I don't think there is a higher definition HDMI, they're all the same. The only difference between is that you get a bigger hard drive with the Elite. Now they both support 1080P, so if your tv supports 1080P then your good. Also not all games are made for 1080P, some are 720P
